Microsoft shows the courage of others' convictions

Whew! There's been so much flip-flopping in politics lately that our heads are spinning. Just when we were finally certain that Microsoft was the devil incarnate, the company has announced that it has decided to support Washington State's gay rights bill after all.

In an e-mail sent to 35,000 Microsoft employees, CEO Steve Ballmer wrote, "After looking at the question from all sides, I've concluded that diversity in the workplace is such an important issue for our business that it should be included in our legislative agenda."

Oh, so it was a BUSINESS decision. Never mind our comment about the devil.
